Below, Acheick & Long offered you some very wise advice, & you just blew it off, saying you'll get the indictments going & let the U.S. law chase the guilty. Good for you that you were only in 4 years in the early days (you missed a lot of crap) but Acheick & others were in the Family much longer & during the 'flee' stages & what they're saying is right. The indictments are great, but catching the guilty is the ultimate goal & extradition may not be easy or possible.

When friendly people offer advice, don't blow it off out of hand. At least consider it. A lot of people know from years of experience what they're talking about. Not that they're always right, but give it some thought.

Just out of curiosity, how many people have you made yourself & your actions accountable to--since your actions affect so many? Are there people whose advice you seek & who you listen to very carefully. 'Quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger,' as the proverb goes.
